In this workshop we use partners and group yoga to explore safe and effective ways to enhance the postures of yoga asana, even when we later do them on our own, whether in classes or in personal practice.
We examine multiple familiar poses, including the standing back bend, standing forward bend, downward facing dog, upward facing dog, and the triangle and revolved triangle poses with partners and in groups, using each other's weight in creative ways to gain direct felt experience of the function of particular muscles and muscles groups. Students will be asked to tap into their own muscular resources to retain the form created or enhanced by the assist, and perhaps repeat the gesture on their own, in order to develop the skills and the muscle memory to continue to perform the gesture more safely, effectively and deeply. You can expect to leave with a transformed capacity for physical accomplishment – and a greater capacity for relaxation and openness to the possibility of a transformation of consciousness in the gestures – via enhanced understanding and physical experience of the muscles involved in each gesture and the optimal ways of engaging these muscles. Teachers will also gain useful tools to apply in assisting, correcting and enhancing the practices of their students and clients.
